What do you think about low Wattage halogen lamps? Checking the internet is showing that it is better as a heating source than incandescent. However a lot of people are unsatisfied with using them because they blowing up quickly (they might using wrong fitting or shake them). They might have some issues with working in high humidity.

Is there anyone who is using halogen lamps if yes what fitting are u using and what lamps?

I am thinking about this set http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lucky-Reptil.../dp/B002UEAWRA but it is kind of expensive so I would like to be sure that this is a good way to go.
Another choice that I am thinking of is buying ceramic E27 holder http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ceramic-Sock...59286&sr=1-107 or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Reptile-Tort...1VYHYTM6NPR4QK and halogen light bulb http://www.amazon.co.uk/Zoo-Med-AH-S...ywords=halogen

What do you guys think? I hope there is someone who have knowledge about using halogen lamps for jungle vivs.

Our halogens are easy to work out.

They use roughly half the wattage, so if your using a 100w tungsten you use a 50w halogen

The trick to long life is a quality stat and ceramic lamp holder.

I use HabiStat and get 6 months plus with ours.
